Microsoft and Bethesda have revealed Redfall at E3. This co-op Left-4-Dead-style vampire game features open-ended gameplay of Arkane Studio. Redfall looks so impressive, but the title was announced out of nowhere and not gonna launch until 2022.
Seemingly, Redfall has already been under development for quite some time. As per the LinkedIn page of environment artist Fransisco Cruz III, he started some initial works on the game only a few months after Prey has been shipped.
The Id Software animator, Jeff Senita’s profile says that he is working on Redfall, implying the Doom masters are helping out with this ongoing project.
Redfall will be launched in 2022 and it will have been under development for nearly five years, which fairly a long time for a multiplayer project. Ambitions for this project seem very high. Here is the official description of the game:
“Redfall is an open-world co-op FPS from Arkane Austin, the award-winning team behind Prey and Dishonored. Continuing Arkane’s legacy of carefully crafted worlds and love of creative game mechanics, Redfall brings the studio’s signature gameplay to the cooperative action and FPS genres.
- Slay Together – Redfall blends single and multiplayer options seamlessly, allowing the player to venture into the darkness alone or to squad up with up to three friends for a four-player co-op. Teammates can try different hero loadouts and combine their strengths to overcome the vampire legion and their brood of maniacal followers.
- Reign in Blood – Redfall’s vampires aren’t your typical bloodsuckers. They were created after a scientific experiment went horribly wrong and are continuing to evolve. After their transformation, some vampires develop powerful abilities and grow into bigger and badder vampires. But they’re not the only thing standing in your way – players will also face off against the human cultists who worship the island’s hungry new leadership with the hopes of joining their ranks.”
Redfall is coming sometime in 2022 for PC and Xbox Series X|S.
